I can't be mad at this guy. It's weird for us to trade a core player and not hate him. All the best.

Poor JJ. Now, he has to play behind two Ball Hoggs in Ellis and Jennings. Well, at least the Magic got something for him. Better than nothing.

Was a great fun watching him get better every year since his rookie season when I didn't think he would even stick in this league.

JJ proved me all wrong!!!

Pretty much what HMass said.

Since he would have been such a great fit, I was hoping to see him land in San Antonio. But this probably nets us the best return.

Good luck to Mr. Redick! I'll be sure to wear my $10, green, JJ jersey on St. Patty's day with pride.

While I understand why we did what we did (and we had to do it), its gonna be hard to go to a game and not see my favorite Magic player. Furthermore, I have to explain to my 9 year old why JJ isn't on the team anymore.

Anyone got "Rebuilding an NBA Franchise Volume 2-Don't Get Attached To Anyone", the Kids version I can borrow?

Farewell JJ.

I understand why he had to go, just tough to see the player you respect the most on the team leave. Favorite basketball player of all time too. The Bucks had better do well by him!

This trade hurts because JJ was one of my favorites. He was one of the smartest people we had on this team. Going to miss him a lot. Hopefully he ends up back to us and retire a Magic. Best of luck JJ.

JJ, or should I say White Wade, you are awesome and here's hoping you win a title or two wherever you land.

I was down on JJ for his first couple of years in Orlando. Really doubted that he could ever be more than a 9th or 10th guy in the NBA.

He proved me, and other doubters wrong, and then some. He went from a guy who was at times a liability, so a solid rotation option, to one of the best reserves/role-players in the NBA.

I will miss JJ. His attitude, commitment and loyalty were all you could ask for from a player. Hope he one day finds his way back to Orlando.
